Abstract: Mothertongue Project is a Cape Town-based collective of women artists who explore keys to empowerment of women by developing practical processes of healing and transformation. In 2006, Mothertongue Project initiated discussions with groups in Khayelitsha on the best way a feminist theatre collective could contribute to activism at community level on HIV and AIDS and violence against women. The result was the pilot project Laphumilanga (IsiXhosa for sunrise), whose first phase was implemented in 2006 with Phase II continuing in 2007.
