Akis Dimou was born in Amaliada. He studied Law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where he also completed a postgraduate course in Civil Law and Criminology.
The monologue “… and Juliet” was his first play to be staged in 1995. Since then, 24 of his plays have been presented on various theatre venues (state or other); four of his plays have been adapted from novels by Alexander Dumas (The Lady of the Camellias), Konstantinos Christomanos (The Waxen Doll), Maria Iordanidou (Loxandra) and Menis Koumandareas (Koula). In 2012, and in collaboration with Giorgos Kimoulis, he adapted for the stage Theo van Gogh’s and Theodor Holman’s screenplay “Interview”. A lot of his plays have been translated into English, French, Spanish and Portuguese and have been presented in theatre venues in the UK, Spain, Portugal and Belgium. His complete works in Greek have been published by Egokeros Editions.
Since 2008 he has taught Dramaturgy in Andreas Voutsinas School of Drama.
