Level 4 Improv
with Nathan Sowell
Learn the Grandaddy of “Chicago-Style” Improv Forms
If Chicago-style improv were music, The Harold would be the twelve-bar blues, the language that’s shared by all improvisers in this tradition. In addition to being a challenging and rewarding form in itself, The Harold is also a great teaching tool, and the skills learned in mastering it are applicable to almost every other form of improv. This level builds on and challenges all of the skills the students have learned up to this point. Students weave together multiple story lines and characters to create shows that are each a unique tapestry spun from what has come before. This class includes a student performance.
Nathan has been studying improv since 2008. He started his schooling in Chicago with classes at Colombia College Chicago and the iO Conservatory. Upon moving to Austin, he studied and performed consistently at ColdTowne Theater.
Nathan has been a member of the ColdTowne Conservatory Faculty for the last 5 years, and a senior faculty member for the last year. He has revieved a ColdTony for best coach multiple years in a row, along with ColdTonies for best Teacher of 2017,2018, and 2019. Nathan was also the recipient of the B Iden Payne award for best improv ensemble for his work in Dinner For Six.
