The Dark Room

Episode #9 - Bearded Woman: Little Bear Schwarz

February 8, 2016

What message is veiled beneath the beard? 

Self-described “freak," Little Bear Schwarz is not your average live performer, but is a talented opera singer and burlesque dancer, proud of her natural beard. Little Bear is a symbol of individuality, refusing to conform to the way women are “supposed” to look. Paul and Jordan speak with Little Bear about her decision to grow a beard in a society typically unforgiving of hairy women, and the possibility of finding beauty in what some may consider weird or grotesque.
