This is the story of Lost Vagueness – an anarchic area of Glastonbury Festival comprised of burlesque dancers, trapeze artists, sci-fi, edgy-art, casinos and reprobates – and the eccentric man whose brainchild it was: Roy Curvitz. It tells the story of Roy, a new-age traveller, who in the early 2000s founded the bacchanalian late-night area Lost Vagueness, a move that invigorated the festival just as it was lurching into irrelevance.
Director Sofia Olins was present for Lost Vagueness’s rise and demise, and her film offers some great behind-the-scenes footage, not least a bizarre conflict between Gurvitz and Glastonbury over a repurposed aeroplane cockpit that ultimately spelled the end of Lost Vagueness at the festival.
Part of the Stroud Film Festival.
