#18 – Tim Turnell
Tim Turnell is a multiple-award winning artist who has called Saint John home for over ten years. His one-person performance company (and art moniker) Theatre Narcissus Twelve was created to provide unique theatre experiences while using non-traditional theatre spaces. This facilitates artistic exercise and challenges both performer and audience with new works.
Tim has contributed to theatre, radio, television, and film across Canada. His acting workshops have been invited into all levels of schools, theatre groups, and even correctional facilities. Nominated as Best Actor at the 2011 Acting Irish International Theatre Festival (Calgary, AB) and the New Brunswick Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for High Achievement in Performing Arts in 2014. Winner of the Best Actor in a Drama Award at the Silverwave Film Festival (Fredericton, NB) and Best Theatre Performance at The Originals Arts Awards in 2014 (Saint John, NB).
He is recognized as an actor, producer, short filmmaker, and illustrator. Tim’s long-awaited web-series DULSE on a BENCH debts in 2016 as well as his third season hosting the radio program “In Bed with Tim Turnell” – a limited radio series on Local 107.3 FM (www.localfm.ca) supporting the Fundy Fringe Festival. Tim is considerably more modest than his bio leads one to believe.
