Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea Gibson is recognised as one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word poetry scene today.

As part of their latest international tour, Gibson comes to Bristol to perform their new show, Right Now I Love You Forever.

“How do juggling balls sewn from a pair of panties end up at The Museum of Broken Relationships in Croatia? Why should everyone wear a stethoscope while kissing? What are the pitfalls of dating someone with the same name as your therapist? Is it wrong to be comforted that even if your ex is over you, she is definitely not over your dog?”

“For two decades, Andrea Gibson has been writing love poems and sharing them around the world. Whether those poems are about a love so transformative it makes you feel like you could win the lottery with a parking ticket, or a relationship spent cutting red flags into valentines, Gibson has written it down and spoken it loud.

“In their new show – a multimedia, poetic story-telling experience – Gibson highlights the most unforgettable moments of their love life: from a neighbour’s pet pig walking in during a sexy hook-up, to being proposed to just hours after leaving the psych ward.

“Right Now, I Love You Forever is a show that is for the hopeless romantics and the absolutely hopeless. Whether you’re a sucker for love or you think love sucks, you’re going to fall head over heels…”
