About Transition Stage Company
Transition Stage Company was first founded in Manhattan, New York in 2013 by Natalie Edwards with the mentorship of the late Ron Tippe (acclaimed producer of the movie ‘Space Jam’). Natalie studied at New York Film Academy and worked alongside international students from both the School of Visual Arts and New York Universities Tisch. The realisation came that with a short amount of time on the F1 student visa, visual arts students needed a platform in which their craft could be seen; this exposure allows students to gain enough professional credits to file for their O-visa and also makes them open and available for representation. Transition Stage Company was formed by combining elements of entrepreneurship and the arts – predominantly through networking events, cinematic viewings and Off-Broadway theatre. The ethos of Transition Stage Company is to assist and support artists by showcasing and celebrating Visual Arts; this innovative company will be launching in Birmingham in 2017.
