Description: 4 August, 2017 - 8 August, 2017 - The VASTA Asia 2017 Conference is presented by the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA). This is VASTA’s 31st annual conference, and for the first time ever the VASTA Conference will be held in Asia. Join us this year in the cosmopolitan center of Southeast Asia, where regional and international experts will showcase techniques and uses of the human voice particular to the Asian region. Many of these connect to oral storytelling traditions specific to cultures in Asia and the Pacific. We chose the art of storytelling to involve people at the deepest levels, to bridge a cultural exchange through voice and communication because a good story transcends cultural boundaries. Practitioners from Asia, the Pacific, Europe and the Americas share knowledge about the human voice and how it works, about vocal training and the powerful impact of communication through vocal sounds, words, storytelling, dramatic text and the sung voice. Network with voice and speech trainers, scientists, performers, and public speakers from around the world to celebrate the human voice in its many qualities, dialects and languages, and develop future areas for investigation and research. VASTA Asia 2017 will be an exciting time for vocal, personal, pedagogical and cultural exchange.
