She’s not normal – Koraly Dimitriadis – Australia

Poet Koraly Dimitriadis unpacks the question on why she just can’t be normal.

Koraly Dimitriadis is a writer, actor and film and theatre maker. Much of her work explores cultural and religious repression. She is the author Love and F**k Poems and Just Give Me The Pills. These poetic works form the basis of her theatre show “I say the wrong things all the time” which enjoyed a two week season at La Mama. Koraly received the UNESCO City of Literature residency for her fiction manuscript, Divided Island. She has received mentorship from Christos Tsiolkas on this project. Koraly’s columns have been published across the Australian media with international publications in The Washington Post and The Independent. Koraly produces, directs, writes and acts in films of her poems. She received an Australia Council ArtStart grant for The Good Greek Girl Film Project in 2013. Koraly wrote, acted, produced and co-directed the films with director Nathan Little, with “Best Friend” shortlisted for the Australian Online Video Awards. A spin off TV series based on one of the films “Love according to wogs” was optioned by Cristina Pozzan with creative development taking place in 2015-2016. This inspired Koraly to produce her first unscripted pilot feature Koraly (a mockumentary): I wonder if they’ll make the TV show which was broadcast on Channel 31 together with The Good Greek Girl Film Project. Koraly has trained with Olga Aristodemou, Aleksi Vellis and Peter Andrikidis. In 2020 she is the Moreland writer-in-residence, an Associate Artist at Theatre Works, and she received a Creative Victoria grant to make more short films of her poems. Koraly is represented by Golvan Arts (books) and Profile Creative (film).
