Andreas Staikos was born in Athens. He studied philology in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and theatre in Conservatoire National d’Art Dramatique in Paris.
He has written and directed several works for the theatre: Dedalus, Clytemnestra (1974); 1843, Ostrich Feathers (1994).
He directs most of his plays in their first performance as a result of the special way he writes them: during the rehearsals with the actors’ help. He has also written two prose works: Smutty Henrietta (1978) and the Liaisons Culinaires (1997), a novel translated in more that twenty languages and also adapted for the theatre.
He has also translated a great number of French authors of the 18th and 19th centuries, including Molière, Racine, Marivaux, Musset, Claudel, as well as Laclos' Les Liaisons dangeureuses.
He has taught theatrical writing and theatrical translation in several university departments and in The European Center for the Translation of Literature and the Human Sciences.
