EVENTS For its latest mind-bending avant-garde circus act, Les 7 Doigts de la Main explores inner dream life with "PSY," a culture-colliding mix of Chinese and German stage traditions with elaborate contemporary aerial work. It's meant to evoke subconscious panic, and the ways we eventually overcome them — but if you just want to watch bodies in incredible motion, it's quite a show as well. Irvine Barclay Theater, 4242 Campus Drive, Irvine. Thu.-Sun.Times vary. $25-$45. thebarclay.org.

But after receiving only $400,000, the Irvine Barclay Theatre took his widow, Marjorie Barclay, to court for the rest of the money--and Wednesday it won. Orange County Superior Court Judge James H. Poole ruled that a one-page agreement between Richard Barclay and the theater was valid and enforceable and ordered Marjorie Barclay and her husband's estate to pay the full pledge.

There was no brie, Chardonnay or cucumber sandwiches at this reading and book-signing. When the applause died down, it was strictly apple juice and animal cookies. But if the snacks were juvenile, the prose was quite mature, given that the authors were all under 14 years old. Eleven young authors made their public debut Saturday at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Costa Mesa, with several of them reading from portions of their new book, "Adventures in the Library."

1992 hasn't been kind to the Irvine Barclay Theatre's classical-music schedule. At the outset of last season, five prominent Orange County music groups were set to give 34 events at the theater. Next season, what's left of those groups will be down to 12 performances, and not all of those are rock solid. Still, the facility's top official shows no signs of worry. "I don't want to sound callous," says theater President Douglas C.

Corky Siegel's "Chamber Blues" is a genuine hybrid. As heard Wednesday in the Irvine Barclay Theater at UC Irvine, the program of ambitious compositions and humorous songs offered more than blues licks played by the Consortium string quartet or classical figures from Siegel's harmonica.

Take gospel music from the church to the concert house, and it often sounds like its heart got lost in the transplant, losing its immediacy when it lacks a participating audience. It seemed that might be the case Friday at UC Irvine's Barclay Theater as Mavis Staples sang the gospel catalog of her mentor Mahalia Jackson to a respectful but apparently embalmed audience.
