Perverse Temporalities address queer temporality theories - an academic field that question linear heteronormative reproduction structures and capitalistic ideas of efficiency. For their two channel video work they relate these notions to a backdrop of ballroom contests and in particular the evolving role of lip sync. Keisu and Thuresson produced a song for each other, and then, with neither hearing the song before, tried to lip sync it. The song lyrics are loosely based on Theorizing Queer Temporalities - A roundtable discussion moderated by Elizabeth Freeman (2007) as well as Queer times, queer becomings edited by E. L. McCallum and Mikko Tuhkanen (2011).
