... Director gives "directions", second layer as in the script (playwright's stage direction); so the costumer, set and lighting designer... so your partners on stage.
stage [W] -- "The stage itself has been given named areas to facilitate the precise movement and positioning of actors on a stage". [ Blocking is a theatre term which refers to the precise movement and positioning of actors on a stage in order to facilitate the performance of a play, ballet, film or opera. The term derives from the practice of 19th Century theatre directors such as Sir W. S. Gilbert who worked out the staging of a scene on a miniature stage using blocks to represent each of the actors. ]

Theory of Directing -- filmplus.org/thr
Director's responsibility is SHOW, actor's -- ROLE. Their meeting space -- CHARACTER.
Friends or Enemies?
Director "uses" actors, as actors use playwright.
PC tells - collaboration, Real Politik -- struggle.
Why it should be seen as FIGHT?
Conflict is the essence of dramatic, confrontation (not personal) is the only true link; they should have different interests... and director and actor do have them, different goals.
