Graded Examinations in Performance: Devising Drama

• Solo (one learner) – where the learner performs alone
• Duologue (two learners) – where the learners perform together

Purpose of the Qualification

LAMDA examinations in Devising Drama are designed to develop the skills necessary
to devise a dramatic performance and present it to an audience.
These examinations also provide learners with the opportunity to develop skills which support the delivery of dramatic text. For this reason, these examinations complement Graded Examinations in Performance: Acting (Solo, Duologue and Combined).
Learners who prepare themselves appropriately will develop:

1 Interpretative skills

2 Technical skills

3 Knowledge of dramatic structure and the devising process

Broad Objectives of the Qualification

1 Interpretative skills
The learner will be required:
• to devise a character and situation within a defined dramatic shape and structure • to suspend disbelief by focusing on the immediacy of a character and situation in order to create a credible sense of reality.

2 Technical skills
The learner will be required:
• to build skills in voice, diction and movement in order to realise the specifics of
character and situation.

3 Knowledge of dramatic structure and the devising process
The learner will be required:
• to understand how to create, shape and structure drama.

The specification is divided into four levels, in line with the Qualifications and Credit

Entry Level (Entry 3) Entry Level
Level 1 Grades 1, 2, 3
Level 2 Grades 4, 5
Level 3 Grades 6, 7, 8

Learning outcomes and assessment criteria are set at each level, often covering a range of grades (for example Level 1 covers Grades 1, 2 and 3). However, there is still a qualitative difference in outcome between individual grades within each level.

This is because:

• the set requirements and/or topics for scenes increase in technical difficulty as the grades progress

• the knowledge required for the set discussion increases in technical difficulty as the grades progress.
