Dimitra Thomaidou was born in Serres, Greece.
She studied Theater and Philosophy at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, at Ioannina University and in Dilos Drama School Academy.
Throughout her studies-and afterwards, she has worked as a performer, dramaturg and director in state theatres as well as in free scenes with various directors and ensembles.
Having completed her education, she was invited to attend research laboratories in Greece and France, where she scouted new slats of body energy and psychosomatic actions on stage and started to develop her own approach in performing under the label HealingIsAPerformance.
Her work approach places a heavy emphasis on any possible poetic metaphor of daily life.
