There have been enough "perfect storms" - not just meteorologically, but also in terms of literary metaphor.
Still, you don't need to be Sam Champion or Sebastian Junger to want to break out "perfect storm" one more time in the context of Leonardo Suarez Paz's Cuartetango String Quartet.
The production is an ingenious musical concept: classic tango music of the 1940s and '50s is fused with the harmonic and rhythmic construct of contemporary nuevo tango - and it's performed by a classically trained quartet. Throw in dance, poetry and visuals - and the whole thing is a Force 5 sensoral explosion.
And speaking of storms, the Cuartetango String Quartet will appear Saturday at the La Grua Center in Stonington - making up a date from last winter that was cancelled in a blizzard.
