Abstract: This is an ethnographic study of a non-governmental organization in South Africa and the women it sought to "empower" through community theater performances about HIV and gender-based violence. Theatre for Development is examined through the relationship among its international donors, NGO directors, and local community participants, to examine how the actors had contradictory and often opposing goals that reinforced unequal power dynamics. The NGO constructed a project that reflected a donor�s agenda; these goals were then transferred to a target community for "development." The participants� various reasons for joining the workshop often did not reflect the kind of "empowerment" the NGO intended, yet the participants ultimately used the organization to meet their own needs.
